"Directly accessible on your TV via the Freebox TV service, the games proposed by Free can be played with the included remote.
The game library developped internally (minesweeper, solitaire, morpion, bomberbox, Sokobox, Scavenger, Snakebox...) can be easily complemented by hundreds of emulated games.
For that, it suffices to be in possession of emulator ROMS
or obtain ones from any existing legal download platforms (like pdroms.de
) and to copy them on the FreeboxTV hard drive through FTP, a USB key (or any DDE) which can be connected to the Freebox HD.
A Software Development Kit (SDK) as well as tutorials are also available so that hobbyist subscribers eager to develop new games for the community can do so.
Available starting from today, this free service is available to all DSL subscribers equipped with a Freebox HD, wether or not qualifying for the TV service.
It is also available on a second TV for MultiTV subscribers.
Free will soon extend this service to support multiplayer."
